And here you have them

Madeline Lanciani's Lemon Drop Sugar Cookies. Let me assure you, they would not pass her muster. Oh, she'd have her ruler out, measuring. They are not perfectly round or oval or all exactly the same height. They are DROP cookies - which means they are DROPPED onto the sheet pan by the heaping teaspoonful. Not all DROPS are created equal. And, as I'm sure you all know and, hopefully, will agree, we live in an imperfect world. As imperfect as these cookies are in appearance, let me assure you, they are LUSCIOUS!

  1. Anchoring the cookie between teeth and tongue, sweetness and a slight crunch are followed by an explosion of lemon into a cakey mound of deliciousness. Bonnie’s cookies are perfect blend of texture and lemony sweet zest. Brava!
